In my high school Calculus course, I've encountered several optimization problems involving the area of a circle and I noticed the obvious fact that if you differentiate the area of a circle you obtain the expression for its circumference. This implies that the rate of change of a circle's area is equal to its circumference (which is difficult to visualize). So what does notion actually mean?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
